Discover one of Cape Town’s favorite places to cycle, walk and play. With mesmerizing vistas of city, sea and mountains, the traffic free Seapoint Promenade is the perfect place to watch the sunset or stop off for an ice-cream.
The Sea Point Promenade runs the length of Sea Point’s beachfront, from Bantry Bay to Mouille Point where it connects to Green Point Urban Park and on to the Fan mile. This easy scenic route is completely traffic free and is suitable for kids and riders of every fitness level. The Promenade can be accessed by either the MyCiti Bus or vehicle with parking at Queen’s Beach and along Beach Rd.
For those who need bikes – bikes can be rented from the Up Cycles bicycle rental station, located at the Sea Point Pavilion or at the Vn A Waterfront Clock tower.
Whether you choose to cycle this route during the day or at sunset there is always something fun to explore – from interesting public art installations to an outdoor gym and miniature golf course. A number of children’s parks run alongside the Promenade where you can stop off for some old-fashioned seaside entertainment and ride a train or get lost in a maze. Highlights on the route include the red and white Green Point Lighthouse and the fynbos wonderland of Green Point Urban Park. Entry is free and it is worth spending time exploring some of its features like the Labyrinth and biodiversity garden. Finish of your ride by making a pitstop at one of the many bike friendly cafes and restaurants in the area.
